MARGERY BROWN

"Margery Brown on the top of the hill,

Why are you standing idle still?"

"Oh, I 'm looking over to London town;

Shall I see the horsemen if I go down?"


"Margery Brown on the top of the hill,

Why are you standing listening still?"

"Oh, I hear the bells of London ring,

And I hear the men and maidens sing."


"Margery Brown on the top of the hill,

Why are you standing, waiting still?"

"Oh, a knight is there, but I can't go down,

For the bells ring strangely in London town."

—KATE GREENAWAY.
